Charlie Villanueva expects to play this season and start practicing this week

Detroit Pistons forward Charlie Villanueva said tonight that his ailing right ankle has improved significantly since he was ordered into partial immobilization and that he expects to play this season.

Villanueva said he expects to start making “basketball moves” later this week at the Pistons’ training facility.

“I didn’t think the chances were good that I’d be back this year at all,” Villanueva said. “But I’ve made a lot of progress.”

I wonder whether Charlie Villanueva still believes he’ll need surgery.
